Review the following list of words which describe various values. Circle the values that are important to you. Don’t worry about the number of words you choose and feel free to add any other words that come to mind to this list.
Review all the words you have circled and place a checkmark next to the words that are ‘most important’ to you at this time.
Step Three Identify your top five values. We know it’s hard, but it’s time to whittle your list down to your top FIVE.
Write a one sentence definition for each of your five top values.
